It was my BD present today, I had 2 of the brightest yellow finches on my clothesline....

Last year they didn't come around until near the very end of summer, so maybe they'll stick around now they know I give out free food! [Big Grin]

I just love them, and my neighbor told me years ago there were tons of them, but she never sees them anymore! [thumb]

[clappy] [party] HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO LOZ!!! [party] [wavey]

Glad you got to see the goldfinches on your special day. We have tons here - they're eating me out of house and home. Actually, eating all the thistle!

I need to clean out my gold finch feeder. They never stay long here. How about where you are?
